Strict Consequences for Seductive Studs #gay #BDSM #romance #teaser #NSFW

Hey everyone - with all the excitement surrounding the Rockin'; books, I fogot about poor, lonely Strict Consequences. That's the shorty that's in the His Rules anthology. If you've been waiting to grab it when it was out on it's pwn, apparently you can do that this coming Tuesday! So for this week's Seductive Studs, I'm including a snippet from Garson and Jarvis' story:

Jarvis gave Garson a sideways glance before quickly returning his eyes to the road. Dark wavy hair, heavily lashed brown eyes, pale skin, lean but fit body, Clark Kent glasses and an unashamed pain slut—it all added up to Garson Harrisburg, Jarvis’ own personal wet dream. It was entirely possible that he was in love with the reserved, bookish and unbelievably sexy motherfucker. He just needed to get him alone and talking for long enough to know for sure, to make certain it wasn’t only the mystery that had him so entranced. Whenever Garson submitted so gorgeously to him, shed the uptight teacher and became the sensual wanton, it tightened the web Garson had already woven around Jarvis’ heart.

“We have a few late-night options on the way to my home that are good. What type of food do you enjoy?”

The tension in the car was palpable. At least on Garson’s end. Jarvis had felt like running a victory lap once he’d gotten Garson to agree to go with him.

“Whatever you’d prefer, Sir.”

“Nope. We’re not doing it that way. This is part of me getting to know you. I need an answer, boy.”

The silence stretched on. Jarvis was about to give Garson a warning when he spoke up.

“I’d like to keep it light this time of night and before we do a scene. If you know of a place that serves fresh soups or salads, I’d be fine with that.”

“I do, as it turns out. It’s one of my favorite restaurants. Do you typically eat light?”

Jarvis held back a smile. He wanted to draw Garson out of his shell but didn’t want to temper Garson’s responses by giving any indicators as to his own opinion.

“Later in the day, yes. But I don’t eat a lot of heavy foods or too many carbs. I find it tends to muddy my focus, bring my energy down.”

“Hmm. Smart. I’m similar, but I do like steak, burgers, a more protein-heavy diet.”

Garson nodded, a crease on his brow as if Jarvis had just made some grand revelation. “Yes, I imagine you would. You couldn’t support your bulk otherwise.”

Jarvis tried very hard, but the snort escaped anyway. Another sideways glance caught Garson with his hand to his forehead as if he’d taken ill.

“Forgive me, Sir. I don’t… I’m not very socially adept. I didn’t intend for that to sound so insulting. All I meant was that you’re…” Garson cleared his throat. “That you have an impressive physique, large muscles. Salad wouldn’t create that.”

“It most certainly wouldn’t. Thank you for appreciating my…physique.” Jarvis loved the way Garson spoke. It made it that much more thrilling when he could get him to fly in a scene. “And, Garson? Until we get to my dungeon, I’d prefer that we use each other’s first names.”

Jarvis chanced a peek at Garson’s reaction. Yup. Just as I thought. He appeared panicked, his hands twisting in his lap as he chewed on his lip. Garson had no issues with exposing his hole, begging to have large objects stuffed up his ass, thanking Jarvis for whipping him to the point that he was bruised and covered with welts, but referring to each other by first name? As if they were friends? He acted as if he might faint over such a thing.

Blurb
Can the touch of a rock god last forever?

Music journalist Bryan Gallagher’s life has changed forever in an unexpected way. Not only has he snagged a dream assignment as the memoirist to alternative music’s rock superstar, Aubrey King, but he’s also promised to give the beautiful and enigmatic musician a chance for them to forge a relationship. It’s all very overwhelming for Bryan since up until he spent a sexually charged day and night with Aubrey, Bryan has never even dreamed of being with a man.

Aubrey is completely smitten with the boyishly handsome, young rock writer, Bryan. After their instant spark grows into something more, Aubrey is desperate to keep Bryan by his side for always. He’s promised Bryan that their love is for real, that Bryan isn’t simply one of his rock star conquests.

Their road isn’t an easy one. Despite their deepening bond and growing need for each other, other factors intrude. Neither Aubrey nor Bryan are ready to come out, and their relationship needs to remain a carefully guarded secret. In addition, Aubrey has to answer to the demands of his profession and Bryan has to traverse the shifting waters between his personal and business relationship with his famous lover.

Then a secret is revealed and everything in their joint world implodes. When a love is so strong that two men can barely take a breath without thinking of the other, will that be enough to bridge the loss of trust? The only way they can rock their love forever is if Aubrey can reach Bryan before it’s too late.


Exclusive Excerpt

“It’s… It’s Aubrey.”
Bryan sucked in a sharp breath.
“Please don’t hang up on me until I’ve had a chance to at least apologize.”
Bryan’s throat was about to close off, but he managed to keep it open. “Okay.”
He didn’t want to give Aubrey any indicators as to how he felt about things. All he wanted was Aubrey’s uncensored explanation.
“Obviously, you’re right. I’m a complete asshole.”
Bryan maintained an even tone. “I didn’t say you were an asshole. I said you were being an asshole. It’s not the same thing.”
“Oh.”
Their conversation paused, but Bryan could hear Aubrey’s elevated breathing.
“I’m so fucking sorry, Bry. Like, unbelievably sorry. You’re the last person who I’d ever knowingly hurt and, man, I can’t believe how badly I acted. I swear, I’m not usually like that. I mean, I’m a brat like I told you, self-involved to be sure. Vain. Insecure.” He let out a loud sigh. “Jesus. I sound like a real catch. Everyone should definitely be lining up for a piece of that.”
“Aubrey, don’t.”
“I just want you to believe me when I tell you I don’t throw big fits like that. I don’t rage and get out of control. Say horrible things I don’t mean.”
“Except when you were on tour with Falling.”
There was another pause. “Actually, I meant those things. Jimmy?”
“Don’t get mad at him, Aubrey. I prodded. Had to know what I might be up against.” Bryan needed to make Aubrey understand that he wasn’t entirely off the hook yet. “If there were hard decisions I had to make.”
“Please, Bry.” A fearful plea echoed in Aubrey’s voice. “Don’t give up on me yet.”
“Then tell me what all that shit with Chuck was about.”
Even though he thought he could guess, he also wanted to discuss why Aubrey had flipped out when Bryan had said they weren’t in love, but figured he should save it until they‘d worked out the other stuff first.
“Okay. But in person. I can’t talk about it over the phone. It’s hard enough as it is. That was an awful time for me, Bry. Really, really awful.”
The anguish in Aubrey’s voice tugged at Bryan’s heart. He remembered the parts Jimmy had shared where Aubrey had been mocked by the other band members for being gay, how he’d been treated like shit when it was obvious to Bryan and probably most of the world that the band wouldn’t have enjoyed the success it had without Aubrey.
Ungrateful assholes.
He softened his tone. “The little bit Jimmy told me about how the band treated you was inexcusable. They had no right.”
“Maybe not. But it didn’t change the outcome. I left the band, let it all go to hell because of it. They thought I was being vindictive, but it wasn’t that. I’d stopped caring about the music. I was like a robot every night. Performing like a trained monkey, not caring if I gave the fans what they wanted, not caring any longer if it was real. I left the band to save my fucking soul, Bry. I couldn’t do it anymore.”
“I’m sorry you had to go through that, Aubrey. I really am. No one deserves to be treated that way. They only ruined it for themselves. And you’ll make it up to the fans this time around because you won’t be mired in their negativity.”
“Yeah?” Aubrey’s voice was so small, like a wounded child.
“Yeah.” Bryan cleared his throat. “But I think we need some sleep tonight, a chance to think things through before we talk about Chuck and that other stuff.”
“Oh. You’re not coming back?”
“Not tonight, Aubrey. We need a moment. At least I do.”
“I understand.” Aubrey didn’t sound as if he understood at all. It had come across more like he was fighting to be brave. “Are you okay where you’re at? You don’t have any of your things.”
Bryan smiled. Aubrey might be self-involved, but he’d shown Bryan many times how much Bryan’s needs genuinely concerned him, that he gave it real thought.
Like the Keurig.
“I’m okay, Aubrey, thank you. Jimmy took me to pick up some necessities before dropping me off at the hotel.”
“If you need anything, I can get a driver to bring it over. Your laptop’s here. I feel really bad about that.”
Bryan had gone from wanting to maintain some distance from Aubrey to wanting to hold him close within a short span of time.
“Don’t worry about it. I’m fine for tonight. I wouldn’t be able to get anything done anyway.”
“For tonight?” Worry permeated Aubrey’s voice.

Love Changes by Author LaQuette! #mmromance #gay #erotic


Hey everyone - I have the lovely LaQuette visiting me today, and she's here to share with you from her yummy upcoming release, Love Changes! Read on for more info and to get a sneak peek excerpt from this scorching hot release ;-)


Love's Changes: A Losing My Way Novella
© 2016 All Rights Reserved
by
LaQuette
Genre: M/M Erotic Romance

Blurb:

A near-fatal shot through his chest teaches Lieutenant Bryan Smyth of the NYPD two things: He wants to live to see more days and he wants to spend them with his estranged husband, Justice.

Poor decisions made under the strain of grief split the seams of their marriage. Now it's up to Bryan to show Justice there's still enough of their love left to salvage from the ruins, still something worth the battle ahead.

Bryan's shooting has opened Justice's eyes to new lessons too. The first, tomorrow isn't promised, the second, life's too short to live in misery. Justice has watched Bryan shuffle back and forth attempting to balance the man he is at home and the man he has to be at the precinct for too long. Now, he's done.

The only problem is Justice's heart is having a hard time adhering to the exit strategy in his head.

Desperate to repair their bond, Bryan does the only thing he can to keep his marriage intact, he calls his crazy sister-in-law, True to stir up some organized chaos. She's a wildcard, yes.  As unstable and deadly as nitroglycerin, but she gets the one thing Bryan needs more than anything, results.

The only question left: Is family and fidelity enough to get them through love's changes, or is this really the end?



Excerpt:

As soon as he heard the lock turn from the outside, Justice was on his feet and heading in the direction of the door.

“It’s two o’ clock in the fucking morning and you’re just dragging your ass in here now?”

Justice watched glass-like eyes stare back at him.  He pulled Bryan by his collar, leaving him close enough to soak up the intoxicating scent of Bryan’s natural man-spice aroma mixed with liquor.

“You went drinking with him?”

Bryan’s eyes focused on him a split second before he pulled out of Justice’s grasp. “Yeah, we had a few, then went to see a movie.  What of it?”

Bryan pushed past him and headed for the bathroom.  He opened his pants and pulled out his long cock before positioning himself in front of the toilet.

“A little privacy?” Bryan quipped.

“Not anything I haven’t seen before.” Justice wedged his shoulder into the doorframe as he watched Bryan.  He had to admit, watching Bryan take a piss wasn’t on his ‘Things that turn me on list’, but he wasn’t about to give Bryan an inch of privacy until he knew every fucking detail of the evening Bryan spent with that fucking Herrera.

Bryan shrugged his shoulders, oblivious to, or unconcerned with, Justice’s building anger, and relieved himself without further thought.  When he was done, he washed his hands, then turned the shower on and adjusted the spray.

As he began to remove his clothing he stopped to look at Justice.  “I’ve had a long day.  I’m gonna take a shower and take my ass to bed.  You wanna fight?  You’ll be fighting alone tonight.”

Without giving Justice another glance, or thought as it appeared, Bryan stepped inside of the darkened shower stall.

Justice stood in the middle of the floor waiting, for what he couldn’t really pinpoint.  Acknowledgement, an explanation, contrition, something from Bryan that expressed some form of regret that he’d done something to piss Justice off, instead Bryan's slightly drunk ass—if his whistling of some pop tune was any indication of his intoxication level—continued on behind the smoky shower glass as if Justice wasn’t even in the room.

Bryan finished his shower, pulled a towel from the nearby rack and tied it around his waist.  He stepped around Justice, and headed for their bedroom. 

Justice tried hard not to stare at Bryan’s water-slicked skin.  Bryan at any given time was a turn-on for him.  Bryan naked and wet looking like something Justice should be licking or sopping up with a biscuit had a way of making him forget his train of thought. 

At the moment Justice knew he was supposed to be mad about something, but watching his man saunter in front of him, shoulders pulled back in confidence, the globes of his ass sitting high and tight, Justice could scarcely remember what he’d eaten for dinner, let alone the complicated trigger to his inner-asshole.

He palmed the hard bulge of his jean-clad cock and closed his eyes, trying his damnedest to remain focused on anything other than being buried in Bryan’s ass.  After a few moments of fighting with his mind and body, he walked into their bedroom.  Bryan was still in his towel, sitting at the edge of the foot of the bed.

“Bryan, I can’t believe you’re really going to let this asshole fuck with your recovery like this.  You fucking know better.  All this jack-off is after is getting a piece of ass.”

“So what if he is?” Bryan’s answer striking a fast and fierce blow to Justice’s chest.  “So what if the only thing he wants from me is a good, hard fuck?  Why the fuck does that matter to you?  Why do you get a say in that?  You just filed divorce papers.  Obviously you don’t care about who fucks me or who I fuck.”

Molten heat carved through the walls of his chest, into the center of his heart.  The gripping pain caused his breath to rush past his lips.

“I will always care about you, Bryan.  About everything you do,” he whispered.
Bryan’s flat palms rested against his spread thighs, holding his heavy shoulders up as they threatened to slump in defeat.

“You don’t act like it.  You act like you don’t want anything to do with me.  Like you hate me,” Bryan flinched as he spoke, like the thought of Justice hating him physically hurt. 

Justice averted his eyes; he knew if he found the same sadness in Bryan’s eyes as he did his words, he was going to crumble right where he stood.

“I’ve never lived in the closet, Bryan.  I’ve been out since I knew what gay meant.  I married you knowing that you weren’t comfortable with your sexuality. That was my fault.  I shouldn’t have fought you over the divorce when you asked me for it.  I should have seen the writing on the wall then.  But I loved you so much, I couldn’t bear to think of walking away.”

“And now you can?” Bryan’s words were quiet, but the question shook him from the inside out making Justice’s body twitch with nervous energy.

No

The small word bounced off the inside of his head and made its way to his hollow heart.  This was killing him.  Letting go of the only man he’d loved, relinquishing his claim on Bryan, it was breaking him.

“What happened while I was in that coma to make you give up on us, Justice?  Why are you so hell-bent on giving up now?” The mixture of frustration and pain in Bryan’s voice was nearly choking Justice.  “For five fucking years I pushed to end our marriage and you refused, you fought for us, even when I couldn’t.  And now that I can finally see what a fool I was you want to bounce?  What made this happen, Justice?”

“I just got tired of being the only one fighting for us.  After watching you nearly die, I didn’t have the energy to come back to us fighting about these same issues.  Your fear to live in the light as a gay man has been slowly killing us for years,” Justice offered.  “I’m just finally giving you the freedom to live as you’ve always wanted, in the shadows.”

Justice heard an audible breath cross Bryan’s lips.  It’s heavy sound pulling his eyes from their current position on the floor to his husband’s face.
He’d expected to find the sadness he’d been avoiding, but instead he found Bryan’s features twisted into an angry scowl. 

“You know what Justice…fuck you!’
